Fibroids affect approximately three out of four American women. Many women dismiss symptoms of fibroids (also known as myomas) including, heavy monthly periods, pain or pressure between the hip bones or back of the legs, a frequent need to urinate, constipation and bloating and an enlarged abdomen. Fibroid related symptoms cause women to lose an estimated 2-4 million days of productivity a year. African-American women, and those of any race with a family history, are more likely to develop fibroids than other women. It’s estimated that between 50% and 80% of African-American women will develop fibroids. Fibroids are the #1 reason for hysterectomy in this country— up to 75% of hysterectomies done are for this non-cancerous condition that can be treated without surgery!

Freedom From Fibroids Health Talk

Fibroid and UFE expert John Lipman, MD and his team headed South to Vienna, Georgia to present a health talk on fibroids. Over a hundred women gathered at the Vienna Church of Christ to hear Dr. Lipman speak about Uterine Fibroid Embolization, the non surgical treatment for uterine fibroids. The women attending the seminar listened closely as Dr. Lipman described how the procedure works. Many were surprised to learn the patient goes home the same day with just a band aid and they're back to work in about a week.

Lunch was served to all of those in attendance with many complimenting our catering service, Caterrific which is owned an operated by Craig Reese.
